Interact and SharePoint

A powerful alternative to Sharepoint on-premise deployments; an integrated partner for SharePoint as part of Office 365

#1 SharePoint alternative

Voted the #1 SharePoint alternative

Whether you’re looking for an alternative to your on-premise SharePoint intranet as an integrated digital collaboration platform, or to optimize SharePoint as part of Office 365, Interact has a solution to meet your needs. Despite its Microsoft reputation, on-premise SharePoint software often needs lots of customization to be effective – and that gets expensive and time consuming. Unlike many SharePoint competitors, Interact removes the headache of building and implementing a successful intranet – which is why we’ve been voted as the #1 SharePoint alternative by Ragan.

“NSL chose Interact as an alternative to SharePoint after careful analysis of both the operational and financial implications of the change. The barriers SharePoint presented to us are now a thing of the past – Interact is easy to set up, easy to administer, flexible and gives users the power to collaborate. Interact has given us an intranet that exceeds our expectations.”


Interact in partnership with SharePoint in Office 365

If you operate SharePoint as your DMS as part of Office 365 in the cloud, or you’re looking to roll-out Office 365 across your business, we can help. Unlike its on-premise offering, SharePoint as part of Office 365 offers only limited customization through the purchase of 3rd party apps. Primarily a DMS solution, it lacks flexibility to be configured as an intranet solution. Interact integrates with SharePoint as part of Office 365. Now, you can benefit from the best of both worlds; a DMS using SharePoint for document storage and version control, and a feature-rich, easy-to-use and quick to deploy intelligent social intranet, proven to drive company-wide communications and collaboration.
